I agree. Free traffic, although it will cost you nothing in terms of money, it will cost you a lot of time. And as we know it, time is gold. Sometimes, it's a "poor man's strategy".  I remember the quote, "The problem with being poor is that it eats you a lot of time."

But, don't misunderstood SEO. It's a free strategy that even the rich people are obsessed with. If you have a web site and you do SEO, your big advantage over those using paid traffic like PPC (Google or Facebook), is that you are in for a long haul. In paid traffic, once you stop paying or spending money, the traffic will come to halt. But with SEO, which is a free traffic strategy, once you have done your work properly, it will serve you for a very long time.

I also say we need both:

Paid - fast and targeted traffic

Organic - takes time but good for long term.

So I recommend using both...

Free traffic ako mostly, so that's SEO and Keyword research, sometimes forums and blog commenting. Still, nag-eexperiment ako sa paid traffic occasionally, like Stumbleupon ads (so far, no success sa paid ads, pero yung isang post ko nagviral in 2 days). IMAutomator din para link building.

Since blog naman yung akin at hindi business na nagbebenta ng products, free traffic ang main method ko (supplemented by some paid traffic methods). Kung nagbebenta ka ng products, I think kailangan paid, tapos may blog din dapat yung business para may free din na makuha.

Free traffic or SEO for views and impressions on my blog.

I use paid traffic to get sales. Malaking tulong sya sa business. Let's say you have a business and selling a product worth $25 or 1,200+ pesos. Kung meron kang traffic na 100,000 and 0.5% ang conversion rate. Meron kang 500x1,200 meron kang 600k profit. Depende yan kung anong kailangan mo and depende yan targeted audience mo. And may mga tricks din sa paid traffic. Hindi lang basta ilalagay mo ang site or product mo and waiting for a sale/impressions. Kelangan alam mo ang market, competition and proper keywords for your business.

you don't should use tool free traffic because this is black hat seo and your site will be penalty by google

Free traffic is the best if you know what are you doing. You have to work hard for it. Paid traffic for instant and fast results.

For me, I will start on paid traffic. Let's say I will invest 500 pesos for ads, I will make my headline and content more catchy and tell people to share my advertisement. Just give them a freebie para i-share nila ang advertisement mo. And makakakuha ka na ng organic traffic using your paid traffic.

Paid traffic on Facebook is good if your audience is on Facebook. But free organic traffic from search engine works on the long run. Write a well-researched, -optimized quality content and part of the traffic dilemma is solved.

Hello,

Website traffic should get organically from the search engines.

From long term and good ranking of your website good seo practices should be followed such as on page seo and off page seo.

With paid traffic from legitimate sources such as google adwords, facebook adverts etc will help your to get fast traffic in case of a new website.

Thank you,

I prefer free, organic traffic. The reason is, you really have to be careful with paid traffic as sometimes the value you can get isn't worth the money you're spending. I have heard a lot of stories of people spending money on ads but can't show good results doing it.

Don't forget to add the ad expenses when you file for the tax to get a credit. I don't know how it works in the Philippines maybe others can share their experience/tax tips.
